Tella Firma

RMG Engineers and Architects is considered the top engineering firm in Colorado when it comes to creating long term foundation solutions for our problematic, expansive soils. RMG is revolutionizing the way residential and commercial foundations are built along the Colorado Front Range, with a new and proven technology called Tella Firma.

The Tella Firma technology was originally patented in 2011 and RMG Engineers is currently the only Colorado Structural and Geotechnical Engineering Firm to utilize this cutting edge, extremely effective technology.

Tella Firma is derived from the Latin words “Strong Home”.

After nearly 30 years in business, and as many years engineering repairs caused by our bentonite clay soils, owner John Clarke decided to look for affordable, effective, and long term solutions for RMG clients. This is when he found Tella Firma and after careful research and testing he decided to become the first and only Colorado engineering firm to utilize the proven technology.

The Tella Firma process elevates the slab above ground thus creating space that protects the slab and structure from the shrinking and swelling of our Colorado soils. The void between the ground and slab allows the soil to expand and contract as it absorbs moisture then dries. Tella Firma can even protect against movement caused by light earthquakes.

Benefits of Tella Firma foundations:

  • Can be designed for residential, multi-family, or commercial projects.
  • It can significantly increase the resale value of your home.
  • It is environmentally friendly with no chemicals used and no waste.
  • More affordable and takes less time to compete than most traditional suspended foundations.
  • Prevents costly repairs down the road.
